Did FIFA drink too much?

Beer must be sold at all World Cup venues in 2014, FIFA has insisted. This means that Brazil need to change its laws. For FIFA General Secretary Jerome Valcke this is a non-negotiable: "Alcoholic drinks are part of the FIFA World Cup, so we're going to have them.

Social Media’s CSR Opportunities

Europe has 476 million internet users, of which 350 million are using social networks. These numbers are derived from InSites Consulting’s 2011 global study on social media use. Over half of the people who are using social networks such as Facebook or Twitter, are connected to one or several brands. The most important reasons to follow or recommend a brand, are personal experiences with the brand and conversations about this brand. Insights into the underlying motives of ‘fans and followers’ enables organizations to better meet their needs.
